        Hi All – hopefully everyone has perused the Fall newsletter, and viewed the election information on pages 7-8.  The Election Committee consists of Sandi Valois, Michael Nahas, and Dennis Owens.  We are under a time constraint as per the Bylaws, so hopefully, we will get some nominations for all positions at the October 4th general membership meeting at Cheers and Gears, and can move through the election process quickly, and into the new year with a new Board! Please consider stepping-up and filling a position in the club.  We are in dire need of Road Captains, since our two illustrious current Captains (Kurt Shreffler and Mike Kanczak) have fulfilled their duties wonderfully.   I will be in CA for the meeting, but Michael Nahas will be there for sure to keep track of the nominations for the committee.  Thanks so much!  Everyone attending the Rib Fest this weekend, have a blast!  Sandi Vroom Vroom Valois

          Hi all – I was in sunny California for the Oct 4th meeting, but have been informed of the following results by the remaining election committee members:

          Nominations for Club officers and Directors are as follows:

          For President: Dennis Owens

          For Vice-President: Paul Koontz

          For Secretary: Sandi Valois

          For Treasurer: Roger Pivonka

          For Road Captains: NO nominations (TWO positions)

          For Directors:

          Diane Koontz

          Jim Kieding

          Barry Spencer

          Michael Nahas

          Paul Mitchell

          David Bell

          Mike Kanczak

          Kurt Shreffler

          Leo Buckon

          All above nominations were vetted by the Election Committee for eligibility and have been deemed qualified. Nominations were then closed.

          NOTE:  Per the BMW MOC Bylaws, Section 5f “Additional nomination are prohibited prior to and on the Election day unless there are no nominees for a particular position; then nominations will be accepted only for that position.”  The two ROAD CAPTAIN positions are open with no nominees currently, so nominations will be accepted for only those two positions until the November general membership meeting. Please contact any of the three election committee members with your nominations, and we will contact the nominated parties to see if they are amenable to the position, and are qualified.

          Additionally – if any of the above nominees wish to provide a “nominee position statement” as per the Bylaws section 5h, it must be received by the election committee no later than OCTOBER 31st.   Ballots will be distributed to the membership in December, electronically or (if requested, by “snail mail”), and will include instructions for returning the ballots (electronically or by “snail mail”). Just a reminder that any returned ballots after the deadline date of December 31st will not be counted.

          Future Events and Meeting dates: For a more detailed listing visit the clubs on-line calendar.

          Membership meeting– November 1, 2018, 7:00 pm, The Oak Barrel, 5975 Canal Rd, Valley View.

          Thank you for your consideration and attention to this matter. On behalf of the election committee: Sandi Valois, Michael Nahas, Dennis Owens.

            Hi all – just an election update.  Although the nominations are currently closed, we are still in need of a Road Captain.  If anyone is interested, please contact me, Michael Nahas, or Dennis Owens before December 31, 2018.

            And since ALL the candidates who were nominated are running un-opposed, there is no need for an official ballot per the Bylaws Paragraph 5g – which states “In the case where nominees for all positions are running unopposed, the election may be declared Moot by a membership meeting vote at the November meeting. If so voted, further effort and expense to conduct an election shall be suspended  The new Board of Directors shall be announced at the January membership meeting.”  This will also be posted in the meeting minutes.

            Thanks to all who stepped-up to the plate!

            ALSO – the BMWMOA summer mileage contest ended TODAY October 31st.  I will be available at the November 1st meeting at the Oak Barrel to sign your form/s for submission.  If you wish me to include your form/s in my mailing envelope I shall do so. Don’t forget to include your MOA number on the form!

            Sandi Vroom-Vroom Valois
